Lady Stardust

My submission for the Bowie music challenge. It's, um, not like the original. I really love the original version. And I mean it no disrespect.

Star

Man, of all the versions of this song I attempted for the Bowie cover challenge, this one is the most nearly acceptable. Picture a seventeen-year-old with a bad haircut, all alone on the night of the big dance with a guitar, a cheap microphone and a 4-track.

Moonage Daydream

An, uh, addendum to my official Bowie Summer Challenge entry.

Soul Love

I really won't be able to come up with another / better / thing based on the Bowie song. Too busy fixing the meals, painting the walls, going to the bank... I consider this my back porch approximate version of Soul Love. Some chords (most chords I guess) are only in the vicinity of the original ones. Be kind. It's been recorded while my daughter was taking a nap, I tried not to be too noisy.

Suffragette City

When I was assigned this tune for the David Bowie 'Ziggy Stardust' challenge, I was a little worried that I couldn't really manage it, somehow. But I had fun with it and I think it turned out OK. Plus I got this total blam-blam to help me with the promo clip, which you can viddy, my little droogie, at YouTube or Vimeo.

Scrimshaw

In 10/4 for the odd time challenge: an invitation to a mild-mannered New England Bluebeard’s castle, whose secret chamber of horrors is apparently nothing more than a collection of quaint decorative arts. [more inside]

It Gets Better

A long time and a bit ago, there was an It Gets Better challenge, and the late lamented Major Dundee posted this in response, along with instruction to ride it hard and put it away wet. So that's what I did. [more inside]
